Removing your home address from the public register

Source: Companies House | | 31/03/2020

Company directors, company secretaries, people with significant control (PSC) and LLP members can apply to remove their personal addresses from the UK’s official company register at Companies House. 

Prior to the introduction of this law (in April 2018) it was only possible for a director to ask for their personal address to be "hidden" if they could demonstrate that they were at a serious personal risk of violence or intimidation.

Company directors and others are still required to provide an alternative correspondence address if they are appointed to a live company. If they are no longer appointed to a company, then an alternative address is not required and only the first half of their postcode will be made available to the public. 

There is a charge of £55 per document where a director wants to suppress their home address. The option to remove your home address from the public register is not available if the home address is the same as the company’s registered office address. 

During the COVID-19 outbreak, the quickest way to ensure your SR01 application is processed is to email a digital copy to Companies House. This will allow Companies House to process the application without delay. 

However, you must also send a completed paper SR01 and cheque or postal order (£55 per document listed) by post which will be processed in due course. Any applications processed by Companies House without receipt of the completed paper document or the correct fee may result in the redacted information being placed back onto the public register at a later date.
